another story -- 193 nations meeting today at the united nations general assembly in new york. but there is one -- one speaker, that's set to take the stage and is certain to spark a bit of controversy. with gadhafi gone perhaps the most controversial figure at this week's united nations general assembly meeting is now iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad. he's set to take stage at the u.n., a platform he's used before to spark both outrage and fear. in 2006, he famously denied the holocaust. at colombia university in 2007, he claimed there were in gays in iran. in 2009 he denied the holocaust again causing many u.n. delegates to walk out. and last year, ahmadinejad implied 9/11 could have been an inside job by the united states. but beyond ahmadinejad's words, iran's actions matter to the u.s. because iran proves itself, time and time again, to be a dang dangerous wild card in a volatile region. just in the past year, iran resisted the arab spring, launching attacks on protesters. it was reminiscent of the violent response to iran's green revolution in 2009 when iranians cam
